Crippling Depression!



You'd think I'd be able to notice the signs after all these years. But nope! 

So, yes, I haven't posted anything I planned, mainly due to crippling depression! Or rather, not realizing i was showing signs of major depression until it became overwhelmingly unbearable.

In fact, this has been the most unproductive month I have had in a while. Literally could not draw. I wondered if it was anxiety from the art walk coming up. Or maybe due to my lack of proper sleep. Depression caused by stress. Maybe I was being lazy.

None of the above! Turns out the new sleeping pills i started at the beginning of the May, were actually causing my depression to kick up, even keeping my usual anti depressents from working. I've been off them for a couple days, and my mood has gone up a lot.

I was honestly going to save this joke for my comic, but I'm usually prescribed new sleeping pills and new amounts to take, like, every two months. I've taken so many over the years i don't even remember half their names anymore. It's the only medication I haven't been able to find the right balance for. 

Guess it's back to the drawing board for me (in more ways then one.)

I'M GOING TO BE AT THE ART WALK!! And sketches!

Earlier this week I showed you guys this picture from a secret project.

I am pleased to announce that that secret project is THE EDMONTON ART WALK.



Every year, Edmonton's Whyte Avenue becomes art central, with artists selling and making art all down the street! And this year, I'm gonna be one of them.

So what does this mean for updates?

I'm still getting use to my work hours, but with me working on stuff for the Artwalk, you should be seeing regular art updates. Now, both of these projects are going to take up a lot of time. Heck, just getting a few things worked out in the last two weeks was so insane, I couldn't work on fixing Slug At Work.

But I won't be selling comics at the Artwalk, which means I'm definitely going to attempt to make comics at the same time so I don't get withdrawal or something! I don't know how, and I'm going to be extremely busy, but I'll do what I can to make it work!

Basically, updates are irregular from now till the ArtWalk

Oh yeah, I promised sketches for you guys, right?

Well, I'll be honestly, these aren't the greatest sketches, because I was drawing super light and running out of pages,(i have now turn the book upside down and drawing on the back pages) but heres a few rough sketches for now






And the one nice sketch!


So you can see a bit of a theme going on. Sharks and Slugs. That's still not final, I've got mermaids and betta fish paintings on the way too and possibly some other things.

That's all for now guys

Wish me luck. Cause its going to be and interesting two months!

Great White Flight




I know I said I was going to post some WIPs, but instead you get a finished piece, one of many future ones to come. I'll wait a little longer to tell you guys what my secret project is. Though i will post some sketches on thursday. But enjoy what is, well, the first acrylic painting I've done in YEARS. Feels good!

No Speed draw tomorrow

I hate to do this 2 weeks in a row, but needless to say, I have been very busy this week and to that extent, very VERY exhausted. I'm getting use to the new job and I still need to get some paintings done for a special project. And honestly? I'm getting back into using pains and it's a lot less stressful to do off camera

So right now, especially with my new job and everything slowly being paused, I'm going to come up with a new schedule so it works better with my new day job

Sluglady Plays Night In the Woods Ep 07- Everything goes wrong!





latest episode is up! How much can Mae screw up in two days? Turns out a lot. Also, things get spooky!

And yes, today's episode is almost two hours long! I was fighting with myself about whether to make short or long episodes, hence why they went to 1 hour long. Then I realized that even with me cutting out boring parts, it's going to take me AGES to get through this and the rest of the Blackwell Games I have lined up. I only post letsplays once a week. So, for now on, letsplays, unless they are one-shots, are going to be a lot longer!
